Ambient dialogue[edit]

At Snow Ridge Camp
Lightbringer Kovalik: They know my name. They know who I am. How can I function this way?
Sorg: Who knows? What are you talking about?
Lightbringer Kovalik: Everyone here knows we're Whisper agents. Centuries of secrecy tossed aside like an old garment.
Sorg: Perhaps it's time to lead the world into the light instead of pushing from the shadows.
Lightbringer Kovalik: We may be working in the open, but we don't have to be completely open with our allies.
Sorg: What do you mean? We have to cooperate. Isn't that best for everyone?
Lightbringer Kovalik: What may benefit everyone now may not benefit the Order later.
Lightbringer Kovalik: We have an obligation to make sure the Order survives.
Sorg: I have procured strategic information about troop movements. I must see the commander.
Crusader Ahdan: How did you get this information?
Sorg: I cannot divulge my source to you.
Crusader Ahdan: Let me guess, you could tell me, but then you'd have to kill me?
Sorg: Ha ha ha. Believe me, after I was done, you would beg me to kill you.
Crusader Ahdan: After the war I plan to find a girl, settle down, and live in peace.
Crusader Rulun: This war may end, but there will always be another.
Crusader Ahdan: That's depressing. How can you live that way?
Crusader Rulun: I'm charr!
Crusader Rulun: We need better ale. This stuff takes like yak's milk.
Crusader Ahdan: Yeah. Weak.
Crusader Karl: Hah! Little human can't hold his ale.
Crusader Ahdan: I can still hold a sword!
Crusader Karl: Save it for the Flame Legion, little one. We'll kill them and take their ale.
Crusader Rulun: Why are you here, human?
Scholar Vandrus: What? Humans don't have a right to help in charr affairs?
Crusader Rulun: Not what I meant. The Vigil is here to fight. Why is the Priory here?
Scholar Vandrus: To make sure you grunts don't blow us all up when you breach the Flame Citadel.
Recruit Jarg: Night duty again? Why is it always me?
Crusader Rulun: Because you got no one below you to boss around.
Recruit Jarg: I need new boots.
Quartermaster Elisabeth: I'll order more, but it takes a few weeks to get supplies out here.
Recruit Jarg: Weeks? Some good this alliance with the Order and Priory is doing us.
Crusader Rulun: Life would be easier if we could just slaughter all the males and be done with it.
Siegemaster Trobb: What about the tension? The friction? The wonderful byplay between two diametrically opposed ways of being? Don't answer.
Recruit Jarg: What are you looking at? Something wrong?
Medic Yantha: Just watching the Flame braziers. Fire is a thing of raw beauty.
Recruit Jarg: You may see beauty in those brazier flames, but all I see is hatred.
Crusader Nulken: Do you miss Ebonhawke?
Quatermater Elisabeth: Why, you do care about me!
Crusader Nulken: I care about everyone. If I surround myself with friends it's easier to cut down enemies.
Quatermater Elisabeth: Ah, self-interest. That I understand.
Crusader Nulken: Not entirely. I can't explain it, but I symphatize, just a little bit, with non-charr.
Crusader Karl: Bah! The grawl will never fight the Flame Legion. They are weak!
Crusader Nulken: Weak, yes, but easy to manipulate.
Crusader Karl: I wouldn't bet on it.
Siegemaster Trobb: Did I hear something about a bet?
Crusader Nulken: I won't bet against you. Not again.
Crusader Karl: Aren't you cold out here, little one?
Medic Yantha: We don't really feel the cold as you do.
Crusader Karl: Bah! Norn do not feel cold! We are hardy, like the mountains.
Medic Yantha: We're more like trees, I guess. When it gets bitter cold, my limbs creak.
Commander Lakkun: There's a major push coming. We need extra food, armor, and weapons.
Quartermaster Elisabeth: I'll do what I can, but Vigil supply lines are stretched thin.
Commander Lakkun: Priory pockets are deep and Whisper agents can go anywhere. Get them to help.
Commander Lakkun: We're on the front lines of this alliance. Time for the rear guard to pitch in.
Siegemaster Trobb: I'm having trouble with the imbued ammunition.
Commander Lakkun: What's wrong?
Siegemaster Trobb: A preponderance of magical energy infuses this entire area.
Commander Lakkun: So? Shouldn't that help?
Siegemaster Trobb: Do you know nothing of the Eternal Alchemy?
Siegemaster Trobb: That Whispers agent, Sorg, scares me. He's a spy, you know.
Scholar Matta: Yes, I know. He's very open about what he won't tell you.
Siegemaster Trobb: Yeah, I guess I'm just more at ease with explosives than secrets.
Crusader Karl: How can you spend your life studying?
Scholar Mavrun: What's more challenging that following a trail hundreds of years old?
Crusader Karl: Bah! You search for relics in dusty, deserted ruins. Hardly the stuff of legends.
Scholar Mavrun: Deserted: Hah! I once beat back a horde of undead wielding nothing but a scroll case.
Scholar Matta: Why are we here? Any relics this region once had were consumed by the tar long ago.
Scholar Matta: This is a charr matter. What's in it for the Priory?
Scholar Vandrus: Don't you mean what's in it for you?
Scholar Matta: The two questions are often aligned.
Scholar Matta: I simply don't trust those Whisper agents.
Scholar Pyrval: Why? They seem a lot like us. The seek knowledge to help the world.
Scholar Matta: They hoard information for their own purposes. How do we know they will share it with us?
Scholar Vandrus: We don't. But we have an obligation to the world to make this alliance work.
Scholar Mavrun: That blasted tar sticks to everything.
Scholar Matta: It does have amazing elastic and adhesive properties.
Scholar Matta: We should excavate the tar fields. That goo is a natural preservative.
Scholar Mavrun: Ugh. I'd rather sift through dolyak droppings than muck through that tar again.
